The career of the Sprinkler Fitter can provide a range of opportunities for achievement. Once an apprentice successfully completes the apprenticeship program and becomes a Journeyman, many opportunities lie ahead. You can work as a foreman or move up to superintendent with a company. Being identified as a Sprinkler Fitter is both rewarding and fulfilling. The Officers and Business Agents are elected from the Membership by the Membership.
Once you have entered the Apprenticeship Program and have completed your six month probationary period, you will become a member of Local 669 and will be enrolled into the related training program. The apprentice starts work at a percentage of the journeyman wage. Each six months of apprenticeship, the apprentice records are reviewed to make sure that there is satisfactory progress both on-the-job and in related course. Satisfactory progress means advancement to the next classification and a wage increase until the apprentice completes the five year program.
